The Implanon implant promoted by the NHS quickly became popular among women after it claimed to prevent pregnancy for three years by releasing hormones into the bloodstream which prevented the fertilization of the egg.

However the NHS has received more than 1,500 complaints with more than 500 women complaining that they got pregnant in spite of the device while more than a 1,000 complained about scarring caused by the device.

An investigation conducted by Channel 4 revealed that 14 women lodged complaints with their local health trust and the NHS paid out more than Ģ200,000 in compensation.
